Lackey Delivers, Crawford Goes Yard As Sox Sweep Angels

Lackey finds groove in 7-0 win over Angels

      ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – John Lackey beat his former team again
with eight superb innings, Carl Crawford hit his first home run in
a Boston uniform, and the Red Sox completed a pitching-dominated
four-game sweep of the Angels on Sunday with a 7-0 victory that
extended their winning streak to five.
      Lackey (2-2) scattered six hits, struck out six and stranded
eight baserunners, becoming the third straight Boston starter to
hold the Angels scoreless. The right-hander, who spent his first
eight big league seasons with the Halos, is 4-0 with a 2.45 ERA in
four starts against them.
      Adrian Gonzalez had three hits and two RBIs for the Red Sox.
      Matt Palmer (1-1) allowed four runs and six hits in five-plus
innings.
